Context // After being asked by my sister to create some stationery for my nieces (Betsy and Ella) I decided to take Ella's favorite animal, the elephant, and push theme to see what it could look like for a birthday. 

Content // Every good party has bunting, so I thought Ella's birthday should too.  I wnated to play with simple patterns and a bright palette.

Context //  The green elephant and pink palette were the elements I originally used on Ella's stationery.  

Concept // This invitation is was took cues from the stationery and the bunting.  Fun fact - there is a park called Tear Drop Park in NYC and that is where the bunting was shot.

Context // I wanted a way to bring a little celebratory whimsy to this project.  A party hat seemed perfect.

Concept // This party hat utilizes the original typeface from the invitation as well as the elephant.  In order to create a bit more whimsy, I put the elephant and type on at an angle.

Context // While working on this project, I couldn't get enough of this great pink color.  It kept making me want dessert so I figured why not put it on top of one?

Concept // These cupcake toppers bring the theme back in a fun way that also adds to the table design.
